    Boxing Information Help

    First things first if this is in the wrong subforum i apologize and ask the mods to move this thread.


    The reason I started this thread is because i need the help of Bullshido member. I'm a 2nd year student Graphic Design in St Lucas, Ghent. We just received a new assignment revolving around the Olympics and we needed to choose a sport. I and a 2 others (it's a group work) chose Boxing. I do MMA but my knowledge of boxing is limited and offcourse i will do my own research/google-fu/library diving but i think with the wealth of knowledge here it's stupid not to ask here for help.


    So my question is that does anybody know any good boxing books/website or you can know it yourself. The focus does lay on Olympic boxing and not professional boxing.

    I already thank you all for your help and time. I greatly apriciate it. I might post the result here on Bullshido but it'll be in Dutch.

    So what is the assignment on, exactly? Is it an historical approach to the sport at the amateur level ?
    What's the angle ? Fill me in and I'll see if I can help.

    Right now i'm searching for information about boxing. We don't really have an angle yet. I do graphic design and the most important part of the assignment is getting a good concept to work around. In the end the most important thing is that original concept and it is nicely designed.

    It's kind of hard to explain what they mean by that but it's a little easier what they don't. I needed to design the cover of a CD. I chose "gazing at the moonlight" from Hopsin. I made a drawing (wich they liked very much) of him gazing up but they didn't approve of it because it's too literal. Making a drawing of him gazing at the moon. So that's why we need as much information about history, technique, boxers, etc so we can brainstorm around it to find something original.

    I hope i get my point accros because it can get confusing. I thank your for your effort!

    Nice one OZZ.

    For the OP, youtube and subscribe to "sweetfights". No, I haven't had time to watch but I know their calibre.

    On Facebook, Pro-Boxing can be interesting.

    Have a look at this list:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ists_in_boxing

    and base some background reading on wiki around the people on that.

    An interesting feature about olympic boxing is the success of Cuban boxers, the overwhelming majority of whom never turn professional due to the communist ideology they live under.

    These guys:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Te%C3%B3filo_Stevenson
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%A9lix_Sav%C3%B3n

    are two notables
